A good way to ask for the opinion of the visitors of your platform is using surveys. You can add a survey on your platform in both projects with timeline and projects without timeline.

  • Project with timeline: choose 'Survey' as participation method in a timeline phase

  • Project without timeline: 'Survey' is the overall method in this project

You can read this article on the general set-up of a survey project.

Have you chosen SurveyXact as your survey tool? Here are the steps you need to follow to embed your survey into the platform.

1. Getting the Survey Embed URL (Share Link)

In your SurveyXact Survey, select 'self-creation' in the 'Distribution' menu. Click on 'Enable self-creation' and click on the 'Link' tab. Copy the link shown there.

For this example, the Share Link is http://www.survey-xact.dk/LinkCollector?key=2H8CQ8F392C1.

2. Paste the link in your project (phase).

Unfortunately, contrary to Typeform, SurveyXact does not support passing of custom variables to embedded surveys. This means that

  • Typeform allows us to invisibly track the email of users when they are logged in on the platform while taking the survey. SurveyXact doesn't allow us to link your survey data to your user registration data on the platform.

  • SurveyXact survey results are not directly accessible on the platform.
